Why Arabs lose wars

Permalinks to this entry: individual page or in monthly context. For more material from my journal, visit my home page or the archive.

That's a pretty provocative title, but "Why Arabs Lose Wars," a December 2000 article -- via the Red Rock Eater news service -- by retired U.S. Colonel Norvell B. De Atkine (there's a mouthful of a name), explains the topic lucidly and without jingoism. It's a sobering read, and goes a long way to explain how Israel survives surrounded by enemies, and how Iraq could lose a war with Iran (not an Arab country, by the way) even when the latter nation was in chaos following its 1979 revolution.
